First let’s dance
A ‘nuff said celebration ft. Amir Sulaiman
BRZZVLL is founded by Vincent Brijs. The band plays improvised dance music with a jazz-fusion, funk and rare groove sound like those of the 70’s: bass and drums very tight and funky, horns, guitar and keyboards very imaginative and sexy. Each song floats in a very playful mood to groove. Their monthly gig at ‘Nuff Said (an evening with music, spoken word, stand up comedy and literature, that takes place at the cultural centre of Berchem, Antwerp) allows them to play together with renowned national and international artists.
Exactly one year after ‘Engines’, their critically acclaimed album featuring Anthony Joseph, BRZZVLL releases its fifth album; ‘FIRST LET’S DANCE, A ‘Nuff Said celebration ft. Amir Sulaiman’. Indeed, this album is a celebration in honour of their longterm collaboration with ‘Nuff Said, featuring Amir Sulaiman (Oakland, US, known from Def Poetry Jam, a.o.), who could be considered ‘Nuff Said’s godfather. Expect a reborn BRZZVLL who take their sound and playing to the next level, accompanied by the thrilling, contemporary and spiritual poetry and rap of Amir Sulaiman. “I know that everything is wrong, but first let’s dance.”
‘First let’s dance’ will be released on Zephyrus Records, February 3rd & on Vynilla Vinyl, April 2016.
